You want complete honesty right?
I know this is only the first section of a story, and therefore a draft, but you should still strive for quality. You work had a lot of technical errors.
1. The first letter of a sentence is capitalized. So many of your sentences are not capitalized.
2. To show possessive, you should use apostrophe s. If your character is looking at "Jarods [whatever]", she is actually looking at "Jarod's [whatever]". This is another common mistake in your short piece.
3. Spell check. I saw at least one misspelling that would have been caught by spell check. I saw another "bar tender" that wouldn't be caught by spell check so you should definitely proofread manually.
4. Pacing. You mention Chakra is a place and that Jarod is the bartender, thus Chakra is some form of pub or club. This connection, because it is implied and not stated, will fleet from short memory very quickly. So by the time you say "doing Chakra", the reader is likely to have forgotten what Chakra was and may be confused and be forced to track back. Always remember that a reader trying out a story is not going to be overly attentive. That kind of attention span is only for once a reader is hooked. You should refrain from tugging at short memory in the beginning of a story while a reader is still trying to determine if it's worth reading or not.
Otherwise, there isn't much else to say. There is no conflict yet so it's difficult to tell where the story is going and whether or not I'd be interested in reading further.
This isn't to say you should have a conflict yet; many books take the time to present a character background before entering a conflict so it's alright. It just means that without more information, I can't tell how likely I personally would be to purchase. I would indeed want to read further (at least for a bit) to find out what the story was, but I wouldn't make a purchasing decision yet.

Is your spelling getting worse?I prided myself as a kid on my excellent spelling. As the years go by it's getting constantly worse. I think it's the fault of Spell Checker, a blessed little program but one that makes us rely on it. Are you having the same experience?

Greetings to all!I am currently beside myself and am in deep reflection. It has come to my attention that my posts contain hatred and intolerance. This troubles me as I have always remained open to someone else's opinions and beliefs. In fact, it uplifts me because I love to learn...

How much input should grandparents give their kids about raising their own kids?Should grandparents give input on how their grandkids are raised? Should they reinforce to the grandchild to listen to their parents or repeat what the parent has told the child, making sure they do it?
